In a new study they show that 90% of women over the age of 30 are "crippled by low self-esteem and body-confidence issues" while they attempt to work out in public. Most of these women work out in sweats, in the dark or don’t even bother to work out. Seventy-one percent said they would rather eat comfort food or find a way to be alone and 66% said they’d rather sleep.
Are you ashamed of working out in public? Have you had an embarrassing moment?
Steve doesn’t want to look like that guy that doesn’t know how to do anything so he has work out shame, but Slacker doesn’t have a problem working out in public. He just hates working out next to the guy making all those, I’m so strong, noises!
I’m not embarrassed to work out in public and when I don’t know how to use a machine I kind of just laugh and walk away or the guy next to me notices and helps me out. Also, a lot of the times I have a friend come with me and we suffer together. I haven’t been to the gym in the while, but it’s not because I don’t want to work out in public, but rather because I have no motivation. I rather work out in my own home than work out in a gym, but that’s because I’m lazy and don’t want to drive, so like the survey, I rather sleep.
